Alcohol hand gel not effective against norovirus, hospital warns

Press Association

Alcohol hand gel does not protect against norovirus and can actually help spread the bug, a hospital has warned.

While for other viruses the gel is very effective, it does not kill norovirus and instead "wipes it up and down your hands and arms," Yeovil Hospital said.

Soap and water is the only effective form of preventing the illness as it "lifts it off the hands and washes the bug down the sink."

Yeovil Hospital has had restricted access to some wards as the virus has started coming in from the community.

It advises visitors to stay at home for 72 hours after norovirus symptoms have cleared.

Did you know that alcohol gel doesn't work against norovirus? When you visit @YeovilHospital please use soap and wa… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Harry Redknapp set to 'advise' Yeovil boss Way

He's managed West Ham, Spurs, Southampton and was once tipped for the England job.

Now Harry Redknapp could be set for an advisory role at Yeovil Town.

Redknapp told BBC Somerset he was "only too pleased" to "pass on a little bit of experience" to the team.

"I'm going to pop down tomorrow and have a chat with the boys," he told BBC Somerset.

"And it will keep me busy as well because I've got a bit of time on my hands."

Lord Ashdown: Country 'more catastrophically polarised'

The former Lib Dem leader and Yeovil MP says the "vast swathe of decent, tolerant, moderate people in the middle" have had "no voice in this election".

"The tolerant centre of our country needs to get their act together," Lord Ashdown added.

Analysis: Yeovil sees Conservatives increase majority - and Lib Dems lose out

Chris Kelly

Digital Editor, BBC West

Yeovil was one of the big hopes for the Liberal Democrats. But it's not worked out that way for them.

Daisy Benson was originally to contest the seat for the party but stood down in April because she was moving house.

Then, the granddaughter of Labour's post-war prime minister Clement Attlee, Jo Roundell Greene, came in to campaign for Paddy Ashdown's former seat.

But the move has seen the Lib Dem vote drop by 3.5%.

Conservative Marcus Fysh's vote share has shot up by 12% with Labour gaining by 5.4%.

Yeovil: Lib Dems face uphill struggle against the Tories

It looks like Yeovil will be the next to declare.

Like Bath, Yeovil is an emblematic seat for the Lib Dems, given that it used to be Paddy Ashdown’s constituency.

Lord Ashdown has been closely involved with the local campaign, where the Lib Dem candidate is the granddaughter of former Labour Prime Minister Clement Attlee.

But they face an uphill struggle given the huge swing to the Tories in 2015

Liberal Democrat Paddy Ashdown arrives at the Yeovil count

The Liberal Democrats are hoping to win back the Yeovil seat from the Conservatives.

In 2015 the Lib Dems lost to Conservative Marcus Fysh - and this time round there was a last minute change of candidate for the party, their candidate is now Jo Roundell Greene.

Liberal Democrat Paddy Ashdown arrives at the Yeovil count.

The total votes cast in Yeovil is 59,498.

Turnout is 71.76 per cent, slightly higher than 2015, when it came in at 69.25 per cent.
